Hair fibres compared - What's the difference?

Hair fibres are a popular way to camouflage rapid hair loss or bald spots. There are many different brands on the market, so it is easy to be unable to see the wood for the trees. What is the difference between all these brands of hair fibres and which is the best choice for you?

Protein keratin forms the basis of hair fibres. This is the same substance found in natural hair. The fibres look like powder, but under the microscope they are tiny, thin fibres. These fibres attach themselves to the hair present through static electricity, making even the thinnest hair appear fuller and thicker. This gives an overall fuller appearance to your cut and reduces the visibility of thinner spots. The Hair Growth Specialist has several brands in its range. These are: Keratain, Beaver and Toppik.

The difference between brands

Keratain, Beaver and Toppik are all brands that produce hair fibres. Although all three brands are basically the same, there are some differences. Below are some of the differences between the brands:

  1. Ingredients: Each brand uses different ingredients to make their fibres. For example, Toppik uses natural keratin fibres, while Beaver uses cotton fibres. Keratain, in turn, is completely vegan.
  2. Colour: Each brand offers different colours, although some colours may be similar between brands. For example, Beaver has 9 different colours, while Toppik has 4 colours in our range. Keratain has 7 colours.
  3. Price: The prices of these brands differ slightly from each other. Toppik is generally the most expensive of the four brands, while Beaver is the cheapest.
  4. Packaging: Each brand offers different sizes. For example, Beaver and Toppik have smaller bottles that are convenient for travelling, while Keratain has larger containers.
  5. Additional products: Each brand also offers different additional products to make hair look fuller and thicker. Each brand offers a special spray that can be used to give the hair a fuller look. Or an applicator that makes it easier to distribute the hair fibres over the hair.

In short, while the basic function of all four brands is the same, the ingredients, colour range, price, packaging and additional products may differ. It's up to you to decide which brand best suits your needs and budget.

Advice on using hair fibres

It might be intimidating to start applying hair fibres. You might have questions about how best to approach this. No worries, here we explain the best way to apply hair fibres.

Firstly, it is not difficult. Hair fibres attach to the hair by static electricity. This makes the fibres stick automatically. Furthermore, the hair fibres are easy to apply by holding the can upside down near the place you want to apply it and then shaking it lightly. Within seconds, thousands of tiny hair fibres mix with your own hair. When the hair fibres are lightly sprinkled over the hair, the fibres adhere to the hair present. After application, distribute the fibres by lightly patting the hair with your fingertips.

Hair fibres, like styling products, remain in your hair all day after application. They can be washed out with water and shampoo. Hair fibres adhere well to your hair by themselves. For even better adhesion, use the fixing spray. This also makes the fibres more resistant to wind and rain.

For more precise distribution, there are accessories that make application easier. All three brands have a handy applicator and optimiser that respectively make distributing the hair fibres easier and create a natural hairline more easily.
